Android security is certainly present in several areas of this operating system. These are essential elements that protect users and their data, ensuring that only what is supposed to be seen is present.
A recent failure made something that was thought to be protected possible. We talk about screen capture in protected environments, such as, for example, the anonymous browser mode. So, see how to get screenshots on Android in apps that don't allow it.
Captures on protected screens on Android
Early on, Google limited screen capture in some apps. We are talking about controlled environments and where sensitive user data is present, which must be protected. Thus, the message of the system is clear.
Of course, in many cases, users want to obtain this data and are thus limited. A recent failure has shown an especially simple way to obtain these images. For that only need to use the Google Assistant.
Images where it is not possible
To use this trick they must do the normal image capture on Android. The error and protection message will appear and logically and should be ignored. You then need to launch the Google Assistant directly, in that same window.
To continue you must search by voice for “What is on my screen“. It should also indicate that there is nothing on the screen, but an option will appear to share the screenshot. This is where you must click to continue.
Google gives you these images
Then they must choose which app to use for sharing and continue. The whole process here is identical to what they do in other normal shares, being above all simple to use and quick to obtain, whether for the cloud or another service.
If you need this private information, now take advantage of this method that is available and can be used by everyone. Google will (certainly) have to resolve this apparent flaw and limit screen captures on Android in apps that don't allow it.
